  •  It means that we were wrong to blame AIPAC (2+ / 0-)

    Many people thought that the reason American politicians supported Israel so strongly was because of AIPAC donations, pandering for Jewish votes, and fear of denunciation from the ADL.  AIPAC isn't big enough, there aren't enough Jews to matter that much, and the ADL only has as much weight as the media gives it.

    What was really happening?  I think this Rove plot is a better explanation.

    Global warming is the inconvenient truth, nuclear power is the inconvenient alternative.
